The Buffalo Bills arrived Sunday with a good chance of winning the AFC East. They either had to win against the New York Jets or have the New England Patriots lose to the Miami Dolphins to secure the split and a home playoff game.
Both of these things happened.
The Bills defeated the New York Jets by a score of 27-10 to win the AFC East. The Patriots were beaten by the Miami Dolphins, 33-24, and now New England will have to hit the road for the Wild Card Round of the AFC playoffs in January.
The Bills don’t know who they’re playing as I type this, but we know where and when.
The Bills will host the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Chargers this Saturday night at Highmark Stadium. Kickoff will be at 8:15 p.m. on CBS.
The Bills’ opponent depends on the outcome of the Sunday night football game. If the Las Vegas Raiders win, the Bills play the Patriots, if the Chargers win, the Bills host the Chargers.
The Bills have never played New England in the playoffs, which is pretty remarkable, but that could change this Saturday at Highmark Stadium.
The best part about this timeslot is that many fans won’t have to get up early the next day and can spend a Saturday night at Highmark Stadium for what will be the Bills’ first full-capacity home playoff game at Orchard Park since over 25 years. .
